We are heavy users of blade chassis (both Dell M1000e 16 node enclosures and Dell C series 4 node enclosures). It would be nice to be able to see a visual representation of the blade devices in a blade enclosure in the rack views of device42. My ideas would be showing simple text in the tool tip hover (slot # and machine name) or "carving" out the physical rack view of the enclosure device (the M1000e, 10Us) into smaller devices and having a link to each blade. The approaches may have to be different based on the density of the enclosures. Our C series enclosures are 4 nodes in 2U's so thats a lot of information in a small amount of screen real estate.
